Technical Releases and representations: Technical issues

ICAEW has issued Technical Releases providing guidance to members on business law, financial reporting and other technical issues - such as corporate governance, accountancy market and ethics, SMEs and international affairs - since 1972. Representations were issued as Technical Releases until October 2005.

Timeline

1972–1991

Technical Releases on aspects of business law, financial reporting and other technical issues were issued as part of the numerical sequence of releases between 1972 and late 1991.

1992

From the start of 1992 the numerical sequence was replaced by named series, as detailed below. All Technical Releases issued since 1992 have been numbered sequentially in the year of publication prefixed by the name of the relevant series; for example, FRAG 2/93 or TECH 1/04.

1992–1995

The first named series for Technical Releases was simply called FRAG (Financial Reporting and Auditing Group) which covered Technical Releases on business law, financial reporting and other technical matters from 1992 until 1995.

1995–2005

After 1995 Technical Releases on business law, financial reporting and other technical matters have been published in the TECH series. The full text of most Technical Releases from late 1996 to 2005 are available on the ICAEW website through the archive of TECH Technical Releases.

In addition, the Library & Information Service holds print copies of all Technical Releases.

2005–

Up until October 2005, the term ‘technical release’ was used to cover both responses to consultation documents (such as representations) and guidance. Since October 2005 responses to consultation documents have been issued in the separate ICAEW representations series entitled ICAEW REP.

The full text of all Technical Releases in the TECH series are available on the ICAEW website through the archive of TECH Technical Releases. In addition, the Library & Information Service holds print copies of all Technical Releases.

The full text of all Representations in the ICAEW REP series are available on the ICAEW website through the archive of ICAEW representations. In addition, the Library & Information Service holds print copies of all ICAEW representations published since 1 October 2005.
